The Louis & Susan Meisel Gallery

Dehn gallery event for web 1000x.jpg

TABF is exceptionally lucky to have a wonderful gallery space as part of our offices on the campus of MASS MoCA. We hold 3-4 exhibitions yearly of Artists we have celebrated with books, and further celebrate those artists in our gallery with lectures, artist and author book signings and opening receptions. See our Facebook page for the next events and current exhibition.

The Library Donation Program

TABF Books Donation 1000at600.jpg

The Artist Book Foundation believes in a serious and directed library donation program, consisting of approximately 10 percent of each print run to underserved public, art, and university libraries in the Unites States and abroad to ensure our richly illustrated and engaging content is available to all who are interested. We do this both directly and through The Distribution to Underserved Communities Library Program (D.U.C.) 

The Younger Artist Series

Younger Artist Series 1000x at 600.jpg

This biennial award will celebrate mid-career work through the publication of a first monograph of a chosen artist under the age of 50 worthy of greater exposure. A committee of distinguished artists, art critics, and other members of the art community determine the award recipient. We are seeking sponsors for this program. Please contact us if interested. 

The Archive at TABF


To sustain and protect important information regarding contemporary and modern art through the work of visual artists, the Foundation is establishing an archive, both print and digital, to include artists’ monographs and catalogues raisonnés. The archive will house publications dating from 1880. We have and continue to accept donations of individual items and collections as well as funds to support cataloging and digitization.
